While the lo fi black metal assault can often sound very derivative, when it's good, **** kills. Sejr are mad raw and mad energetic. They play badass raw black metal style riffs, but condense it all down into <2 minute tracks, so it's all killer no filler. Got a rabid howler on vocals too.

Pretty much every riff is a winner here. Play it. Love it.

Here's a handful of more raw black punk bands from Denmark


Sexdrome - Grown Younger
I really dig Sexdrome, like a lot, although dunno why. Not too different from all the others but still pretty sickrad and distinct. They just seem filthier.


Jackman - Bad Intentions
With this sophomore release, Jackman went further into hardcore territory while maintaining black metal influence.


Redflesh - Raw War
Groovy.


Garrotte - Count the Almonds
This is one of my favorites, super rad riffing and clanging bass. In such a short duration, this EP is chocked full of really catchy moments and hooks to stick in your head

Back to the importance of atmosphere in black metal. The feel presented on this album is mind suffocatingly dark and vast, even otherworldy. This is definitely one of the best metal releases of the year so far, a top five easily. The music is so outrageously grim and dense in a way that is simultaneously sprawling/astronomical and asphyxiating/torturous. The music here knows no bounds.

Psychedelic walls of dark red cosmic chaos, giant moons of dissonance. Check if you like the experimental Blut Aus Nord stuff

I'm not gonna stop until I just don't know any more bands, or I die by the hands of black metal


Ustalost - The Spoor of Vipers
https://ustalost.bandcamp.com/

An excellent effort from the 2016 metal underground. While there are BM bands like Oranssi Pazuzu that go for an outright psychedelic style, this album achieves it in a more subtle way. Through raw, melodic, and hazy riffs, a hypnotic atmosphere is conjured up.

Yeah keep this **** up, man. I don't have many specific comments because I haven't heard many of these yet, but I've added all of the ones I'm not familiar with to my queue. Long live black metal.

LVTHN - Eradication of Nescience
https://lvthn.bandcamp.com/

Honestly everything from Fallen Empire Records is grade A, but I'm still gonna post some cuts here and there. I only just found this album this second, I was looking for another LVTHN release from a bit ago that ruled, but they've got a new full length so hell 2 the yeah.

I should note that there is a slight unpleasant graininess with the recording, high treble, although that could very well be my headphones, or whatever. If you can get past that than you are in for a treat from what I'm hearing so far. There's a bit of dissonance, some progressive qualities, so it is nice and original sounding for still being more standard BM, and also gallops through with a great energy akin to bands like Katharsis.

Graininess and high treble on a BM record? Well **** me.

I pointed it out because it sounds like a genuinely bad recording as opposed to your raw black metal recording. It's also not like raw BM, it's more like Thantifaxath. Like I said though, it could be on my end always blasting **** through my headphones.

Another glorious take on the abstract atmospheres of black metal. The artist said it best themself: "Harrowing and disorienting ambient black metal. "

Quite suffocating and Skaphe-esque, but this one is a bit further away, with more focus on monster ambient layers and all kinds of weird sounds. The drums are quieter and the riffs are buzzsaw-ier and more recognizable and melodic, sometimes.

Endlichkeit - Teile I​-​VIII
https://endlichkeit.bandcamp.com/album/teile-i-viii

One of the Fallen Empire artists that has been a mainstay in my listening. Lo-fi, freezing and isolated atmospheric bm. This is for Filosofem fans, not as fuzzy as that but thicker and more textural, hypnotic melodic riffs.
